Said better than I did. 100% agree.
I mean, these are distinct issues. This is obviously true and its own tragedy but even having made that mistake to suit MS' version of the character - what is done is done - there is nothing that says they can't do something with it. I mean, as grating as Phyllis can be, she has successfully driven story in the past.
Heck, I don't even think the Sally/Phyllis thing is a bad idea in theory. There is after all something intriguing about Phyllis developing an instant dislike to someone she doesn't realize is a younger version of her.
But they decided about the end game - the feud - without figuring out how to get there and basically they haven't written anything compelling to explain it. They just told us they disliked each other and... now we are supposed to care!
The reasons they are coming up to justify it after the fact are so lame that it defangs the entire emotional investment in what happens.
So I thought family wasn't allowed in the Olympics yet there is Tsisitpas mother and father in the stands. Huh?
Gotta love Tsisitpas defeat and dramatic fall on court. Mary Carrillo and Rennae Stubbs trying to figure out what was going on was priceless. Tsisitpas making the funniest and weirdest faces was hilarious! Was he throwing up was he gagging.... Lord what a sight! The camera showing him looking up at someone while this was going on...
